 Summary:
 Straw as construction material deserves considerable attention as a natural, energy and environmentally sustainable material in the modern period of building sustainable creation. Straw bales meet the requirements of sustainable architecture, but different researches have also shown satisfying specific significant level of certain mechanical characteristics. In this paper, fire resistance of load-bearing and nonloadbearing plastered and un-plastered walls made of baled straw, or wall panels with insulation of baled straw was considered. Fire resistance tests of the straw baled walls are relatively rare in the world and performed in accordance with different standards. Practically, almost all findings of such tests show a surprisingly encouraging results.
